Oh, I hope/assume you knew it was all in good fun; I am not one of those fans that takes it too seriously (though ask the wife about now!).

Recalling we have chatted now about the bball love we share--and I wouldn't be surprised if this is "your" yr. I defn see you coming out of the East, and well, as I always say, IF they play like they are capable (big "if), then I think Lakers/Cavs will be a great series.

But, as we have all seen of late, too many questions remain for my team: Bynum, the bench, and Artest's love of the 3 pt line...fingers crossed.

You guys look pretty good; I hope Shaq works out for ya...

Shag's fine, at least IMO. His lack of finesse makes me laugh, the damn ball rarely cooperates for him, (with his finger roll move). It can't be easy for a 38 yr old big man to spin and jam with authority nightly. And if I'm critiquing, well then his post up and pick&roll leave some to be desired.
I'm hosetly worried about our rotation now (Shaq getting to many minutes). But that's why they pay him the big bucks.

Hold on this is Garcia's thread, well...never mind

I'm calling 911--people are hijacking this otherwise very cool thread!! Enough of the sports talk, you all need to get back to favorite Garcia quotes! Quite a few of these I had either not heard or forgotten about, and yes, he was a truly cool cat! Like the publisher of Rolling Stone said, Garcia was one of the few truly articulate rock stars he ever interviewed. I'm sure I'm not paraphrasing what he said correctly, but I think that was the gist of it.

It's crazy how much I still miss Jerry (RIP) . . .

one of my favorites; "But hey, when you live in Watts, you need a little smack to get by, you know what I mean? You need something soft and comfortable in your life, 'cause you're not going to get it from what's around you. And society isn't going to give it to you"

Articulate? Yes. But he had other qualities commented on by journalists:

http://malfalfa1.tripod.com/garciainterview.htm

Excerpt: This interview with Jerry Garcia's love for acoustic guitars was conducted during the spring of 1985. From the moment he walked into his living room, it was apparent that Garcia was in physically bad shape. His prodigious body odor preceded him by the room’s length, and his beard and dirty black t-shirt were dusted with white powder. Fingers on both hands were blackened from their tips to the second knuckle. (Just four days later, Garcia was arrested in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park for smoking heroin in his parked car, a habit which likely accounted for the tar-stained fingers.) A few minutes into our conversation, Jerry toked on a joint of sensemilla and then fished a large rock of cocaine from his pocket. He chopped it into several rough rails, bent over, and snorted the whole thing without missing a beat of our conversation. Despite the drugs, Garcia proved to be both intense and articulate. He locked eyes throughout the interview, spoke quickly and seldom looked away.
